§790.48   Procedure if no one submits a letter of intent to conduct testing.

(a) If only manufacturers are subject to the rule. (1) This paragraph applies if testing is being required solely to allow evaluation of risks associated with manufacturing and the test rule described in §790.40 states that manufacturers only are responsible for testing.

(2) If no manufacturer subject to the test rule has notified EPA of its intent to conduct one or more of the required tests within 30 days after the effective date of the test rule described in §790.40, EPA will notify all manufacturers, including those described in §790.42(a)(4) and (a)(5), by certified mail or by publishing a notice of this fact in the Federal Register specifying the tests for which no letter of intent has been submitted and will give such manufacturers an opportunity to take corrective action.

(3) If no manufacturer submits a letter of intent to conduct one or more of the required tests within 30 days after receipt of the certified letter or publication of the Federal Register notice described in paragraph (a)(2) of this section, all manufacturers subject to the rule will be in violation of the test rule from the 31st day after receipt of the certified letter or publication of the Federal Register notice described in this paragraph.

(b) If manufacturers and processors are subject to the rule. (1) This paragraph applies if testing is being required to allow evaluation of risks associated with manufacturing and processing or with distribution in commerce, use, or disposal of the chemical and the test rule described in §790.40 states that manufacturers and processors are responsible for testing.

(2) If no manufacturer subject to the rule has notified EPA of its intent to conduct testing for one or more of the required tests within 30 days after the effective date of the test rule described in §790.40, EPA will publish a notice in the Federal Register of this fact specifying the tests for which no letter of intent has been submitted.

(3) No later than 30 days after the date of publication of the Federal Register notice described in paragraph (b)(2) of this section, each person described in §790.40(a)(4) and (a)(5) and each person processing the subject chemical as of the effective date of the test rule described in §790.40 or by 30 days after the date of publication of the Federal Register notice described in paragraph (b)(2) of this section must, for each test specified in the Federal Register notice, either notify EPA of his or her intent to conduct testing, or submit to EPA an application for an exemption from testing requirements for the test. Each such notification to conduct testing or application for exemption from testing must be submitted to EPA by the method specified in §790.5(b).

(4) If no manufacturer or processor of the test chemical has submitted a letter of intent to conduct one or more of the required tests within 30 days after the date of publication of the Federal Register notice described in paragraph (b)(2) of this section, EPA will notify all manufacturers and processors by certified letter or publish a Federal Register notice of this fact specifying the tests for which no letter of intent has been submitted. This letter or Federal Register notice will give the manufacturers and processors an opportunity to take corrective action.

(5) If no manufacturer or processor submits a letter of intent to EPA through CDX within 30 days after either receipt of the certified letter or publication in the Federal Register notice described in (b)(4) of this section, all manufacturers and processors subject to the test rule will be in violation of the test rule from the 31st day after receipt of the certified letter or publication in the Federal Register.

(c) Only processors are subject to the rule. (1) This paragraph applies if testing is being required solely to allow evaluation of risks associated with processing and the test rule described in §790.40 states that only processors are responsible for testing.

(2) If no processor subject to the test rule has notified EPA through CDX of its intent to conduct one or more of the required tests within 30 days after the effective date of the test rule described in §790.40, EPA will notify all the processors by certified mail or publish a notice in the Federal Register of this fact, specifying the tests for which no letter of intent has been submitted and to give the processors an opportunity to take corrective action.

(3) If no processor submits a letter of intent through CDX to conduct one or more of the required tests within 30 days after receipt of the certified letter or publication of the Federal Register notice described in paragraph (c)(2) of this section, all processors subject to the test rule will be in violation of the test rule from the 31st day after receipt of the certified letter or publication of the Federal Register notice described in paragraph (c)(2) of this section.
